I originally met Pasadena, California based Jazz Guitarist Brandon Bernstein at Concordia University in Montreal around 2000. Since then, I have had the pleasure of watching his career move forward, and whether it’s playing with Howard Alden, John Stowell, befriending the remarkable Jimmy Wyble (now deceased), or teaching in both the academic and private realms, Brandon has maintained a strong work ethic and is as committed a guitarist as I have ever met.

In this interview, Brandon shares with us his past, present and future goals, along with a great read on what he works on to keep his chops from going stale. He also talks about his friendship with Jimmy Wyble and what made Jimmy special.

Currently, Brandon is in the studio working on an “official” debut Trio CD and I look forward to hearing it when it’s complete.

This interview was conducted via email in 2012. You can find out more info on Brandon by visiting his website at
